Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room. – Mark Hack
Have you been afraid to show someone the "real" you? Have you been hiding your warts for fear of rejection?
Read the quote above.
Now read it again s-l-o-w-l-y.
I used to believe that I couldn't show anyone my "dark" side. I was deathly afraid they would laugh at me and leave me. It wasn't until I met MR N that I realized I was doing myself a disservice. My dark side was a part of me and if people couldn't accept it, too bad.
Have you had the same thought?
Newsflash: No one is perfect. Everyone is broken/scarred in some way.
Let people see you for who you are. It's only when you love all the parts of yourself can you let someone else love you.
You are a beautiful person and I love you. Thank you for being you, warts and all.
